    I have a jailbroken 1.1.4 iphone and in Settings it says that the bluetooth is unavailable. Bluetooth was working for awhile while it was jailbroken, then all of a sudden it went 'unavailable.' I have tried several things and rebooted but nothing is working. Has anyone experienced this or know how to troubleshoot?

    I've been trying to do a bluetoorh sync with my Palm Zire and the message I get is that the port is unavailable and in use by another application. I know they'e talking because I can beam things from the Macbook to the Zire. (I'm new with the Mac thing by the way)

    Bluetooth Unavailable

    I had the same problem with my iphone 1.1.4, bluetooth unavailable and the installer running very sluggish. I uninstalled the 1.1.4 Compatability Patch and SUID Lib Fix. My bluetooth was immediatley available and installer was back to normal. I am not sure which app was causing the problem, I uninstalled both at the same time.

    It's the 1.1.4 Compatibility Patch

    After searching all over the place, for an answer to this same problem, I tried uninstalling the 1.1.4 patch, and Bluetooth came back immediately. I've had the SUID fix in place before, but didn't find it when I went to uninstall. Seems that the 1.1.4 'compatibilty' patch isn't that compatible after all...

    Thank goodness for this thread! Hope this helps someone else!

    Bluetooth unavailable


    For all those who have jailbroken iPhones and who can see:

    Settings > General > Bluetooth (grayed out "Unavailable")

    Can you please tell me the setting of the key "Disabled" in:


    I've been facing Bluetooth issues ever since iOS3:
    - also used to cause massive battery drain
    - so I manually toggled "Disabled" from "<false/>" to "<true/>" in the above plist
    - battery lasts longer now and
    - i see "Bluetooth" unavailable

    I think most likely some previous version of an installed app toggled this value for you, and forgot/was unable to set it back

    If you have Disabled=true, try to:
    - make Disabled=false and
    - hard-reboot the iPhone (viz. Hold Sleep and Home buttons till the apple logo shows up)
